Wonderful recipe! Very tasty.
I just made these for dinner tonight. They are fantastic. The syrup makes them. I did make my pancakes from scratch, however. I don't like to use Bisquick. I added the 1/3 C. Orange juice and 1/2 C. chopped cranberries and orange peel and about 1/4 tsp Orange Extract to the batter. They were so very good. I would suggest if you are making a large batch, to double the syrup. My pancakes made 9 good sized ones and we used all the syrup. Will definitely make again.
My husband doesn't usually like pancakes, however, he found these to be a good balance between sweet and bitter. I have a pancake recipe of my own with butter or oil in them. I worried these would stick or have an odd texture. No need to worry! These cooked beautifully and had a nice airy texture.
These were some of the best pancakes we've ever had! My husband and I made these together. The syrup is really good, We could almost have doubled it! We used 2 TBLS of maple syrup and it was perfect! This one is a keeper.
YUMMY! Will make again for sure!
